Eva Marcille may describe herself as a sunflower, but the model’s new photo with her son Michael Jr. has fans mixing them up with Beyoncé and her son Sir.
The photo in question was uploaded to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star’s Instagram page on Wednesday, April 17. In keeping with her personal theme, Marcille put a sunflower emoji in the caption of the image of herself gazing at her smiling son as they cruise on a boat. Mom and the son she shares with Michael Sterling recently celebrated Mikey’s first birthday.
The photo had several Instagram users remarking on how much the “America’s Next Top Model” cycle 3 winner resembled Queen Bey as well as the similarities in their 1-year-old sons’ likenesses.
“cutest thought it was B & Sir.”
“Why this look like Beyoncé and Sir tho???? Like wtf lmao.”
“He is so cute but I thought this was Beyoncé and Sir”
“I’m mad I looked real fast and thought this was Beyoncé and Sir ”
The mixup is a much lighter moment that Marcille has had to contend with of late. As the “RHOA” reunion drones on, the model has been exchanging words with co-star Nene Leakes, whom she once considered a friend and big sister.
One issue the two sparred over was whether or not Leakes is the reason Marcille is holding a peach this season. While discussing the matter on “Watch What Happens Live” this week, Marcille rebutted the notion that Leakes deserves credit for her status on “Housewives.”
“When I came on this show, and I called her ‘sis,’” she explained. “But be clear, Nene has no responsibility for Eva Marcille, now Sterling, sitting on this couch.”
When a caller further pressed the issue, Marcille said Leakes was the only cast member on “RHOA” she knew when she joined as a friend of the show on season 10.
“That’s just the truth of it all, and she knows it,” Marcille explained. “She might have helped other people acquire a peach, but she got no fruit salad from me.”
